FROM CHEYENNE AGENCY. 

Does Christmasday Belong To 

The Christ Child OR To 

Santa Claus. 

It surely belongs to the Christ 
Child. Christmasday is Christ's 
birthday. To be a Christian 
means to believe in Christ, Christ 
said that he came to save us from 
our sins. He also told us what we 
must do to make ourselves happy 
forever. 

No wonder that every Chris- 
tian rejoices on Christmasday. 

When is Santa Claus' day? 

What did he do? W r ho was he? 

Santa Claus was a Bishop, the 
Bishop of Myra in Lyria. When 
baptized he got the name Nicho- 
las. He was a holy man, that is 
why they call him a Saint. Santa 
Claus means: St. Nicholas. This 
holy Bishop helped secretly poor 
young folks. He died Dec. 6th 
342. Therefore Dec. 6th is Santa 
Claus' birthday in heaven. Dec. 
6th is Santa Claus' day. 

I was born and raised across 
the ocean in a country called 
S witzerland. When I was not yet 
ten years old, every year a few 
weeks before Santa Claus day 
my mother said to me : ' 'Johnnie, 
be good and Santa Claus will 
bring you something.'" 

In the night of Santa Claus' 
day I laid a plate on the kitchen 
table. Next morning as soon as 
I awoke, I got up to see what 
Santa Claus brought me. That 
night my parents gave me a few 
little things . in the name of 
Santa Claus; they put those 
presents on the plate I had laid 
on the table. The very same 
as my parents did to me many 
other parents did to their child- 
ren, and do so yet. On Christ- 
masday we had the Baby Christ, 
but no Santa Claus. 

The head of our church stays. 



in a city called Rome. I was 
there six winters. Is there in 
that city a Santa Claus on Christ- 
masday? No there is not. 

Here in this country, many 
have a Santa Claus on Christ- 
masday and the Santa Claus they 
have does'nt look like a man of 
dignity, but looks like an old 
jolly fellow. 

How did that come? 

Here in this country a great 
many don't believe in Christ. 
Just because Dec. 25th is Christ's 
birthday, is no reason why they 
should rejoice. But seeing that 
all christians are then full of joy, 
they also want to be merry. But 
because they don't want Jesus, 
they have Santa Claus and they 
represent him the way just men- 
tioned. 

Some of those who believe in 
Christ imitate those unbelievers 
and also have a Santa Claus on 
Christmasday. But a great many 
christians don't do that, a great 
many give Christmas day to the 
Baby Christ. 

Does God like to see in chnrcn 
Santa Claus represented as a jol- 
ly fellow who makes people 
laugh? No indeed, God does not 
like that. 

Does he like to see in church 
or house the manger of Bethle- 
hem with the divine Infant? 

Yes he does.
